It was so refreshing to read Mr Harry Brooks’s observations in relation to the proposal regarding Mr Pike being granted the Freedom of The Borough.

Mr Brooks’s reassuring relocation back to the area has clearly re-established him as our essential intellectual reference and vital moral compass.

Indeed, while I am firmly against such awards, whether at national or local level, I must concede that in many people’s eyes Mr Brooks might be a thoroughly worthy and justifiable recipient of such an accolade.

I do realise, however, Mr Brooks could not possibly nominate himself for such an award - but then again...?
